Do you remember your senior prom? I do. It wasn’t so great because I had no date. But, I still had my friends, and shared that once in a lifetime moment. Of course, it did not pass without drama. And, the teen film, Prom, is no exception. Directed by Joe Nussbaum and produced by Ted Griffin and Justin Springer, Prom hit the big screen on April 29, 2011 by Walt Disney Pictures.

In the film, every couple has a story. However, each one is entirely different. As the big dance approaches, you will see how secrets, insecurity and anticipation affects this group of Brookside High teens as they deal with the impending transition from high school to independence as existing relationships take a different course and others start to develop.  One thing about prom is no matter how many years have gone by since you experienced your own senior prom; the problems surrounding this seminal event have pretty much stayed the same from one generation to the next.


Go behind-the-scenes with Yin Chang ("Gossip Girl"), Danielle Campbell ("Prison Break") and Janelle Ortiz as they go through hair and make-up prep for Rolling Stone's Teen Choice Awards after-party.

Swoon over Nolan Sotillo's acoustic performance of his song, "We Can Be Anything," included on the PROM CD soundtrack!

My 9-year old daughters had a sleepover with a couple friends to watch Prom, and they absolutely loved it enough to watch it twice. Originally, I had thought that it might be a little too much for their age group, but as I heard them talk about the film, I was surprised at how well they comprehended the situations in the film. They understood the individual storylines and had an opinion. So, what was entertaining for them became a lesson for me.
